Love Because God Loves • April 12, 2016 • Stuart Hall

From the beginning God has called us to love each other. Jesus took loving others to a whole new level. But first and foremost we are called to love God! To love him with all that we have. And the amazing thing is that the more we love God, the more we are able to love others. Because God is love and because God loves you!


The Design & The Lie • March 15, 2016 • Clay Everett

We are constantly bombarded with the ideas our culture wants us to believe about sexuality. But what if our culture has it wrong? What if there is a deeper understanding for sexuality that God wants us to grasp? In this series we want to begin telling a different story than our culture. So that you might find hope in God’s ability to redeem your past, freedom from present struggles, and a greater vision for your future!

Parables of Jesus

The Prodigal Son • February 2, 2016 • Brian Few

In this series – “Parables of Jesus” – we’re spending 4 weeks teaching on what Jesus taught through the stories that Jesus told. Jesus often used short, simple stories called parables to teach those around Him. It was through these stories that Jesus would not only teach a moral or spiritual lesson, but ultimately reveal and challenge people’s hearts!

Where Are You Now

In The In-Between • November 10, 2015 • Mike Ashcraft

We often think that the process of getting from where we are to where we want to be should be a smooth journey. However the reality is that the in between is often full of ups and downs, and how we respond in these moments determines how we perceive what’s happening around us. Trusting that God works just as much in our pain as our pleasures is key to understanding where you are, and what God might be doing in that place!

For Mature Audiences

Maturity • October 27, 2015 • Stuart Hall

As we grow up life and by the time we get to college we desire to be mature enough to handle our freedom. But many of us don’t understand what maturity is really all about. We define maturity as freedom from any responsibility to anyone or anything, or not being subject to anyone or anything. The truth is that maturity begins when we commit ourselves to something and built our lives around it! The question is have you committed your life to anything? And if so, to what or whom?

Stories Matter

Peter’s Life Change • August 25, 2015 • Joey Todd

Peter was a disciple of Jesus, of all the disciples he may have even been the closest to Jesus. He had a front row seat to all the miracles and incredible things that Jesus did. Yet at a point of difficulty Peter let fear dominate, and he stepped back from even being associated with Him. But after an amazing encounter with Jesus…it all changed!

2015 Fall Kickoff

More Like Jesus • August 18, 2015 • Clay Everett

“The biggest influence in your life will have the biggest impact on your life.” If this statement is true, then need to ask ourselves, “what is the biggest influencer in my life?” God’s Word tells us that we should increasingly become more like Jesus. As we begin a new semester we want to encourage, challenge, even plead with you as college students to open up your life more to Jesus. Allow Him be the biggest influence in your life, and see what He will do in and through you this year!
